NISS Graduate Student Network

The National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS) is a national organization that works on issues related to information and quantitative analysis. The goal of the NISS Graduate Student Network is to create connections among graduate students from different academic institutions. Under this network, activities are organized to help students tackle challenges of graduate programs and help with their future careers. Students can share their experiences regarding their programs or an internship they did, and webinars and workshops can be organized around a topic of interest. In addition, we hope that this network will be beneficial throughout the student's career even after they graduate from their programs.

Join us in participating in the NISS Graduate Student Network!  In this network you will be able to attend events specifically geared towards graduate students that are studying statistics/biostatistics. You will be able to network with other students who will have similar experiences as you through social events, the discussion board, alumni meetings, workshops, and more! There are also plenty of opportunities to participate, help organize, or even lead activities in this network for graduate students. Please the contact us usingthe link below to join our email list and participate in this networks activities.
